A data frame with 56 observations on the following 24 variables.

`catnum`

Category number, a numeric variable

`catname`

Category name, a character variab

`rnatrl`

Rated naturalness 1..7, a numeric variable

`rfamil`

Recall asymptote, a numeric variable

`rclrate`

Recall rate parameter, a numeric variable

`tas`

`cortas`

Corrected types across subjects, a numeric variable

`ntf`

# of types produced first, a numeric variable

`nmngox`

# of dictionary meanings (Oxford), a numeric variable

`nmngam`

Includes data for all 56 of the Battig-Montague categories from a preprint of
the Joelson-Hermann paper
Values for `catfreqp`

were added for categories 3, 4, 8, 15, 24, 27,
32, 46, 47 & 56 from the Kucera-Francis norms, ignoring "part of", "unit of", and
taking max of labels connected by "or".
